Guneet Monga’s Sikhya Entertainment to reunite with Pagglait director Umesh Bist

Guneet Monga and her production house Sikhya Entertainment will collaborate with Umesh Bist, the director of Pagglait, for the second time.

“Umesh is a prolific storyteller who has a deep and delicate understanding of human emotions, which is his USP. That’s why the moving and extraordinary story of Pagglait touched the hearts of so many people. This is Sikhya’s second collaboration with Umesh,” said Monga.

Pagglait, starring Sanya Malhotra, is a black comedy-drama which tells the story of a young widow who is unable to experience sadness after the loss of her husband.

Meanwhile, Sikhya’s documentary short film The Elephant Whisperers on Netflix is headed to the 95th Oscars. The film, directed by Kartiki Gonsalve,  is the story of an indigenous couple in south India, which bonds with an orphaned elephant, Raghu, to become his caretaker. The film has been nominated among the top five documentary shorts globally by The Academy, which happens to be the third Oscar nomination for producer Guneet Monga.

Monga has previously been nominated for her short film Kavi (2010), Period. End of Sentence (where she was an executive producer) (2018) that won an Oscar and now, The Elephant Whisperers.
